Re: The offical Barclaycard Ring Thread

I just called for a recon, the guy looked over my reports and said he likes my reports because there are no delinquencuies but has a few questions about my balances. He asked about my balances on my Chase Freedom and Amex Zync. He asked what I used those cards for and when they will be paid off. I told him the truth and he said ok, I like your reports, you seem responsible so I am going to approve you for $2500. Smiley Very Happy

Welcome! Check out the stats section of the new site that you have access to. I wish all credit card companies gave us stats on the entire customer base for the card we are using. Forward thinking...

So any people have the same result it seems; Denial/Backdoor Recon/Approval.

Re: The offical Barclaycard Ring Thread

I don't want to sound greedy, but is it possible to recon a recon? Meaning I got denied initially as stated above then got approved after a recon for $2500. Can I call back and try to get a higher limit? If not, how is Barclay with CLIs?

Re: The offical Barclaycard Ring Thread

I applied 7-23 and was denied. I waited for the reasons in the mail they were

 

Low available credit on existing credit card(s)

Insufficient credit history

High debt obligation

 

I'm running about 45% util and my score is 692

 

I called this morning for a recon and they only gave me $1000 but I'll take it! (said with a big grin Smiley Very Happy  )

Re: The offical Barclaycard Ring Thread

Whether $1,000 or $10,000, you're in, right?  Welcome to the club!

 

(for those who didn't get in:  My husband didn't, and recon didn't work for him, either.  Just so you know that other people with decent credit were shut out, too.)
